UPDATE: Child Safely Located; Lumpkin remains at-large
This evening’s Amber Alert stems from a February 27 domestic, in which the missing child’s non-custodial father brought him to a Franklin hotel room that the couple was sharing. While there, the father assaulted the child’s mother, and then left with the child prior to officers arriving.
After the mother told officers that she felt the child was safe with his father, Franklin Police obtained an arrest against the father for Domestic Assault.
After being re-contacted by the child’s mother, yesterday, and advised that the child and his father were still unaccounted for, and have not been seen since the February 27 domestic in Franklin, Detectives obtained an additional arrest warrant for the child’s father, Sharles Lumpkin, for Especially Aggravated Kidnapping, and requested that the TBI issue an Amber Alert.
